Gabriela Nivela, is an Ecuadorian born Latina who can’t seem to stand still: having lived in Spain and Canada, she followed her passion for languages and adventure to Germany, where she currently resides. In addition to her deep-rooted love of travel, educating herself and others about social issues has become one of her biggest past-times. You’ll often find her in bed curled with her cat, eating fries and reading non-fiction. She’s also a very proud contributor to reclaimingthelatinatag.tumblr.com and Belladonna magazine (belladonnamag.org). You can follow her brown girl adventures on Instagram at gabi_niv.
